ECOtality And Lloyd Center Unveil Electric Vehicle Charging Stations In Portland

ECOtality, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, and Lloyd Center today announced the completion of four Blink® Wall Mount electric vehicle (EV) charging stations located at the northwest corner of the mall.

“Our partnership with Glimcher’s Lloyd Center will go a long way in providing an alternative to fossil fuels for EV drivers in Portland,” stated Colin Read, VP of Corporate Development at ECOtality, Inc. “Building a sustainable infrastructure means offering EV drivers the opportunity to integrate the responsibilities of daily life, with the ability to charge their vehicles along the way.”

Lloyd Center is one of the city’s retail landmarks and features tenants like Nordstrom, Forever 21 and LOFT. The addition of the new charging stations is part of Glimcher’s overall sustainability efforts, which include a robust recycling program, environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and renewable energy.

“Sustainability is an important part of property management,” said Charlie Kretzer, Director of Operations at Glimcher. “We are pleased to partner with ECOtality to bring this focus outside of the mall to our shoppers in a convenient and cost-effective manner.”

The Blink Network of charging stations provides EV drivers the freedom to travel as they choose and conveniently charge at Blink commercial locations along the way. By becoming Blink Members, consumers may also yield even greater advantages of the Blink Network, such as local incentive programs, reservation systems, and enhanced Blink Network capabilities.

ECOtality is the project manager of The EV Project, a research initiative to help build America’s future EV infrastructure. The project will study EV infrastructure to support the deployment of EVs in key markets, by collecting and analyzing data from vehicles and chargers. The project is a public-private partnership, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy through a federal stimulus grant and made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
